Stories like these are coming up left and right recently. The Parents of College Students board was just talking about a college that requested applicants friend them on Facebook and, recently, a government agency demanded access to a perspective applicant's FB account.
Government I can see, for security clearance purposes. I wouldn't mind a college asking to be "friended" as long as it was optional. But a middle school bringing in a police officer? That wouldn't fly with this momma bird!
What do you think? And does the fact that she is only 12 play into it in any way? (Thirteen is supposed to be the minimum age for a FB account.)
